Abstract

The advent of CBCT has made it possible to visualize the dentition, the maxillofacial skeleton and the relationship of anatomic structures in 3D. CBCT represents a valuable resource in dental practice because it allows the establishment of a precise treatment plan by means of diagnostic imaging. In cases of increased difficulty or intra operative complications, root resorptions, perforations and root fracture it is prudent to consider the use of CBCT with its diagnostic value and limited radiation exposure. Analyzing the morphology of the root canals in human dentition conclude that the 3D image provided by CBCT is a great advancement as an auxiliary method to establish the endodontic diagnosis.
